Abstract:

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum L.), commonly known as Dalchini, is one of the ancient tree spices cultivated on commercial scale in India. Both bark and leaves of this plant are aromatic due to the presence of volatile constituents- cinnamaldehyde and eugenol, apart from numerous other chemicals. A survey was conducted to know the effect of immature fruits of cinnamon with different locations and farmers with respect to yield and commercial utilization of cinnamon fruits. Cinnamon growers from Sirsi and Siddapurtalukas of malnad Karnataka were selected for the survey during 2019-2020. Information collected as per the survey format on Stage of fruit harvest varied from Immature buds (SujayBhat) to Just exposure of fruit from perianth (Dinesh Gowda) and Immature fruit just tip opens (SatishDev). Fruit yield per tree ranged between fresh (6 kg), dry (2.4 kg) [Dinesh Gowda] to fresh (4 kg), dry (1.6 kg) [SatishDev] and fresh (3 kg), dry (1.2 kg) [SujayBhat] and Number of fruits per kg weightranged between (10500 fruits/kg) Dinesh Gowda to (10300 fruits/kg) SatishDev and (10100 fruits/kg) SujayBhat etc. From this study, it was concluded that cultivating mono crop over mixed crop gives better yield of Cinnamon fruits [Dinesh Gowda] fresh (6 kg), dry (2.4 kg) followed by [SatishDev] fresh (4 kg), dry (1.6 kg) [SujayBhat] fresh (3 kg), dry (1.2 kg) respectively.
